the "Heat/Raptors discussing Lowry trade" title was completely misleading. there is no trade discussed in this article, and lowry is not under contract. i changed the title.

here is the actual article:

theScore

Quote:
Well, the Heat are interested, as they should be. That interest is said to be mutual, according to Brian Windhorst of ESPN, who is clearly set on breaking the hearts of Toronto Raptors fans. He did call it a long shot, however.

It's early in the process, and the Raptors have been clear that they would like to retain Lowry, who could be looking for fair market value instead of a ring. He's earned just $28.8 million over his eight NBA seasons and at age 28 still has ample time to chase a ring.

If Lowry bolts we should probably throw the max at Bledsoe or give Patty Mills an offer he can't refuse.

Any interest in Lowry would be as an addition to what they currently have. I believe Mario Chalmers is a free agent this year and they obviously want to upgrade that position. If there is talk about a trade with the Raptors it will be because they are over the salary cap and need us as a team to sign him and trade him to their team.

Personally I'd lose a lot of respect for Lowry if he went there.

I think it means that both Lowry and the Heat are interested in a Lowry-Heat pairing. Nothing to do with the Raptors or trade at all.

Lowry wants money at this point in his career, Miami won't /can't offer him what raps can. Thus is a dumb rumour with no basis (of course Miami wants Lowry, he's an all star caliber player)

Hmm I don't know MU is saying that if Lowry want to stay he will. My understanding is that Heat is pushing for sign and trade because they can't really offer much, and if Kyle will want to go to Heat Raps will have no choice

Why would they include the Raptors? Is it not assumed they have interest? JUst seems like odd wording is all.

A month before free agency and the media is already insinuating Lowry wants to go elsewhere. The way they word shit makes me gag! But we better get used to it, even if he re-signs here we'll hear how he did so ONLY because he got more money, or a team like Miami didn't have the cap space.

Mutual interest.. I'm not gonna lie, we've had kyle for a couple of seasons and have only been competitive in the last. Even if we won the first round, we would've lost all the positive vibes after meeting miami.

The weather there is great and their organization has built a strong foundation. I would hate it just because it's miami but he'd fit perfectly there..

I'm still hoping it doesn't happen but i won't be all that surprised or mad if it does.

He goes there he is dead to me. Sorry, go to any team other than NY/LAL/Miami. He's a FA and can go where he wants, but go to one of those places and he can fuck off!
